Abstract:

The submitted monograph draws on prof. Bartoněk´s older Czech monograph „Dialekty klasické řečtiny = The Dialects of Classical Greek”, Brno, Munipress, 2009, and presents the translation of his most recent „Chréstomatie starořeckých nářečních nápisů = The Chrestomathy of Ancient Greek Dialect Inscriptions“, Brno 2011. This publication links 174 selected Ancient Greek inscriptions written in ca. 30 Greek dialects, which have been distributed into 5 main Ancient Greek dialect groups (1: Mycenaean Greek, used between 1400-1200 BC on the island of Crete, the Greek mainland /and sporadically even in Asia Minor and Israel/; 2: Attic-Ionic, 3: Arcadian-Cypriot, 4: Aeolic, 5: West Greek (or Doric in wider sense), documented since ca. 800 BC down to the 3rd -5th cent. AD, both in Greece and the Greek colonization regions of the Mediterranean and Black Sea areas).

The selected Ancient Greek inscriptions are presented both in Classical Greek originals and in modern English translations, endowed with brief grammatical commentaries and provided with ca. 60 figures and diagrams - offering in such way an abundant picture of the Ancient Greek dialect relations, including the basic pieces of information on the linguistic classification of individual Ancient Greek dialects. Thematically are the inscriptions considerably varied from inscriptions of religious, historical, economic or juridical contents to moralistic or quite comical memoranda or records of private or fully banal character.
